The clip posted on TikTok shows the lynx sitting on a raised stool with a collar around its neck. A few moments into the video, the trainer starts pulling the chain attached to the collar. He tugs it so hard that the animal falls from the stool. The lynx then pounces on the trainer and starts scratching him before fleeing the stage.
